I'm  not vey impressed with Kulasekara's poor fielding repetition in big occasions..Dropping Gambhir in 2011 world cup final cost us the world cup. Dropping Samuels in 2012 T20 final cost us T20 world cup.. Dropping Russell's dolly today could have cost the match had it been a tight game.. I understand that he doesn't drop catches deliberately.. But specially after playing international cricket for 10+ years dropping such dollies can't be acceptable .. See how good fielder Chameera is.. Due respect to all the great work Kulasekara has done for SL Cricket over years I believe his place in the team should be given to a young fast bowler irrespective of where Sri Lanka will end up in this world T20. Would you agree with me?

He is not fit to be in

He is not fit to be in international cricket, Lakmal is a better bet. What is the captain and selectors thinking?

Kula is a cleverer bowler than Lakmal and a better bat too...the 2011 catch was a very very tough one, though today's was a regulation sitter. But the whole team were weak in the field, it might have been his drop that looked the worst but the entire XI didn't live up to their usual standards.

Not only Kulasekara

Not only Kulasekara, Kapugedara and Thirimanna should be dropped immediately and give those places to new comers irrespective of the results we are going to have. those above mentioned trios are bloody jokers. not suitable to ply for the national team should be kicked out.

We need a sport psychologist

Forget about Kula and his missed catch. I think we must get a sport psychologist ASAP, I'm worried about these players future.

Don't you think that they feel the utter humiliation they go through everyday now. Look at the body language, shoulders down, hands on hips, facing down they go through a tough time.

You can't expect them to catch a dolly right now. Crowed booed these dropped catches because they wanted Gayle show.

It's high time we hire a sport psychologist, if not these players can get really damaged.

Yes but..

Yes Kula has dropped catches in finals but yesterday doesnt compare to the two finals and the game was lost with Gayle and Bravo yet to bat. The question with Kula is where to form here? If he is not swinging the ball he is a up and down pie thrower.

Not just his fielding but his

Not just his fielding but his batting and bowling standards have dropped considerably also.
If he can't swing the ball he is ineffective. And really in the conditions we have seen for this tournament his selection seems a waste.

Kula Selection

Yes. the way he attempted the catch was heading for disaster. His hands were positioned to take the catch as above the head but he attempted it below neck....... His batting has also gone down..... and bowling is ineffective on theses pitches........ Kula is also affected (as the rest of the team) by the WE ARE FAILURES syndrome that requires immediate attention of a sports psychologist. What is SLC doing ? Sleeping!
